Recognized as one of the best interviewers in America, Emmy award-winning Charlie Rose presents his eponymous nightly PBS program that draws the best, most creative minds in the world to his famous round oak table.

Rose has attracted an astonishing roster of guests from every walk of life, from Nelson Mandela and Mikhail Gorbachev to Nobel literature laureates Toni Morrison and Seamus Heaney. One night he may be entertaining business leaders such as Bill Gates or Andy Grove, on another one might see Julia Roberts, Bruce Springsteen or Yo-Yo Ma.

Renowned, as referred to on CBS, as “the last refuge of intelligent conversation on television,” Rose believes in showcasing areas such as architecture, painting, photography and classical music, which very rarely appear on mainstream TV. His Special Edition shows present one-hour profiles of prominent individuals, and week-long specials cover scientific developments such as the Human Genome Project. Another “special” strand is the Great Masters project, taking a look at the lives and works of the greatest artists. All these programs are produced by Rose's own production company, Charlie Rose, Inc.

In great demand as a speaker on a wide range of subjects and also has a conference moderator, Charlie graduated from Duke University with an BA in history and a JD from the School of Law. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and has been honored with doctorates of law from C. W. Post College and the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. As well as winning an Emmy he has been awarded the George Peabody Broadcasting Award and the CableACE Award.
